You could argue people wouldn't want to watch John Ruiz jab and grab routine or Wlad's slightly more exciting version of the same tactic but they do

That's sport to an extent, watching the best in the world even if their tactics are very boring. George Graham's ****nal had plenty of fans. People show up to watch Marathons

Tactically you're probably going to see them box at a Jack Johnson like pace. Ultimately smaller weaker boxers who couldn't hurt their opponents would tire and lose.

EDIT: Bodyshots become more telling in these fights. Being able to use technical skill at a slow pace would also be telling, ie maintaining technique when tired
